The Family Services Program of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center has been a vital connection for our family! It has enabled our kids to be raised amongst a village of caring adults and to know other families like their own. Our involvement with the program over the last 7 years has ranged from social activities, camps, and day trips to cultural vents to parent and baby groups to parenting courses to college financial planning and pride parades. The experience always leaves us feeling cared for and part of a larger community. Our kids have used the staff members names as part of common family discussions and there is something to be said for really feeling accepted and understood in a way that is not always present in our daily lives as parents in traditionally heterosexual settings! Keep up the fantastic work!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
caring, dedicated, cool, educated, loving, knowledgeable!
